How much can I make as a Saladworks franchisee?
All franchisors are restricted by the Federal Trade Commission and various state franchise sales regulations from providing you with specific profit projections. To help with your due-diligence the FTC requires that every candidate receive an FDD (Franchise Disclosure Document) prior to becoming a franchisee. There you will find average financial performance numbers as well as investment estimates. To obtain a copy of our FDD, please compete our inquiry form and we will follow-up with you to answer any questions.
Do I need previous restaurant or franchising experience to become a Saladworks franchisee?
Yes-both are preferred. Previous multi-unit operations experience is ideal for candidates pursuing a Saladworks franchise opportunity. However, if a great prospect does not have sufficient restaurant experience, he/she must hire a GM with the required experience. Our 4 week intensive training program at our corporate office in Conshohocken, PA, will help give you some of the tools necessary to get you started on your way to successful restaurant ownership.
Does Saladworks offer financing?
No, we don’t provide financing but we do have resources that will assist you in obtaining financing.
How soon can I expect my Saladworks franchise to open?
Our Real Estate team will travel to your market for an in depth real estate analysis within 60 days. Your first restaurant will generally open within 8-12 months of signing your franchise agreements. That said, if you have real estate already identified, that timeline is greatly reduced.
